New Faculty Orientation

Welcome to Ramapo!

Every August, the Faculty Resource Center coordinates New Faculty Orientation on campus.  For new faculty not able to attend (or for faculty who simply wish to brush up on what they learned!), videos of this information are listed here.  Please feel free to contact the individual presenter listed for more information or the FRC Director Tammi Redd.
